We have been advised by the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service that the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Authority has agreed a 12 week consultation period following the announcement of proposed changes to the Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service. Under the new proposals, the Service would seek to move underused resources from where the risk is low and invest more into work to reach the most vulnerable members of society and help keep them safe. This includes proposed closures of a number of fire stations where risk and activity is low and the removal of fire engines that are underused. They are looking to reinvest some of the financial savings into prevention work in the community. They will be holding public drop-in exhibitions in the localities that are affected by the proposals and other locations across Devon and Somerset throughout July and August – please see the poster for details. This is so they can talk with local residents and explain the changes and reasons for change as part of the consultation process.

Please Note: Their proposals do not include changes to Torrington Fire Station.
